Nile -- Springfield, VA -- February 14th, 2010

Hot damn, killer show. My friend and I arrived after the local opener (I can't stand that particular band), and saw Dreaming Dead setting up, and was surprised to find there were two women in the band. After their set, I was preparing to grit my teeth throughout Rose Funeral, but found out that their van crashed and they couldn't make the show .

Krisiun totally slayed, it was my second time seeing them and they rocked the fuck out through their set. I'm unsure of their setlist, they didn't have them on the floor, though I know they played "Murderer". Then came the mighty IMMOLATION, which was my favorite of the night. What a kickass, brutal performance, from a legendary band. They also had killer merch, I purchased a shirt with "CAN YOU HEAR US? DEATH TO JESUS" on it. Best $20 ever.

Finally, Nile. I had really disliked them until their newest album came out. "For Whom the Gods Detest" changed my opinion on the band. Karl had about 4 million guitars to sound check, so my friend and I chatted with the guitarist of Cab Ride Home (One of the best bands in VA). Finally Nile came out, and made me into a proper Nile fan.

IMMOLATION:
Passion Kill
Swarm Of Terror
Majesty and Decay
The Purge
Den Of Thieves
Father You're Not A Father
No Jesus, No Beast
World Agony

Nile:
Kafir!
Sacrifice Unto Sebek
Hittite Dung Incantation
Sepent Headed Mask
Ithyphallic
Execration Text
Papyrus...
4th Arra of Dagon
Permitting the...
Sarcophagus
Lashed to the Slave Stick
Cast Down the Heretic
Black Seeds of Vengeance

Definitely one of the better shows I've seen, especially since Rose Funeral didn't play, so the bands had less of a time constraint. Krisiun and Immolation both played no frills, brutal, death metal. Nile was very impressive, with Karl and Dallas doing a lot of crowd interaction. At one point Dallas told a man in the front "Hey man, if you're gonna be grumpy just give someone else your spot", and Karl chimed in "Everybody over here, and over there, are having a great time, except you man".

Killer show.
